My four week old started acting weird it is all puffed out and lethargic. don't know what to do???
I'm not sure what is going on with the little guy...But I know someone can help
she won't move just sits there all puffed out her feathers are out and her head pulled in.
More info please- how long have you had it, what do poops look like, describe brooder & temp, what are you feeding it, are the others ok, has the chick been outside on dirt, is it eating/drinking, anyone besides you handle the chick, any respiratory signs, have you checked it's crop, have you checked it's bottom to make sure it is not pasted?
You are describing a sick chick, but it could be cold, pasted, have cocci, be dehydrates, been dropped ect.
we went outside today and it was running around and then I saw it just laying down and since then it hasn't moved ate or anything. I saw my 2 yo lil girl over by her so not sure if she got stepped on a little bit?? I feel just horrible
2 yr olds and chicks don't mix well. But there are many possibilities for a sick chick outside besides being stepped on. More info on husbandry is needed.
I just took 2 chicks out they were out for 5-10 minutes and I was right by both of them and didn't see them eating anything. could a bee sting do damage??? there was a bee flying around. I really don't think my daughter did anything but all i had to do was blink and something could have happened but I am so picky about watching her
the brooder is at 75-78 degrees everyone else is acting fine, no pasty butt, her crop is empty, haven't seen her poop since being outside. she was fine I think something must have happened outside but just don't know??? nothing is stuck in her mouth. I have had her since day one
how can you tell if they are suffering???
